Sorry to hear of your problems, but some air pockets should not cause a problem…stuff happens. With fear of sounding like a broken record I will repeat again my suggestion to take one bag and practice sealing with it multiple times until you get the hang of it and how your particular FS is going to react to sealing. You know the drill…seal, inspect, cut off that seal and do it again. I think I sealed my first bag 6 or 7 times, which is a lot better than wasting 6 or 7 bags.
Then in the future if you still can’t get your 2450 to draw down a good vacuum PLUS seal it then I recommend what I had suggested in an earlier reply to you of using a straw or tubing, a good set of lungs and even a spare pair of hands and suck and push the air out of the bag and then quickly seal it with a bread twisty! One word of caution though make sure you don’t blow into the bag!
